Tell your story about a laptop taking a spill here. I had my first last night...here goes. i was dj'ing a party with a pair of cd changers and my tibook. i had visualizations on the tibook, so a crowd kind of gathered around. i stepped away to get a drink, and five seconds later, i saw my tibook take a five foot nosedive off the cab it was resting on. it hit it's side, the battery popped out and the music, of course, went dead. Here's the funny thing, after one second of freaking out, i thought, "eh, it'll be fine." And indeed it was. i popped the battery back in, started it up (there was a slight delay), and everything ran fine. So what happened to your laptop?
